Calling the Air Jordan I and the Air Force 1 “classics,” is kind of like saying that the 95-96 Bulls were a good team. In the broadest sense, it’s factually correct, but it spectacularly undersells the lasting historical impact. Calling the Jordan I and the Air Force 1 “genre defining, global style icons” would be more like it.
Get ready to experience these two old-school icons, like never before, with the women’s 1 Reimagined collection.
The 1 Reimagined collection brings together 14 women from across Nike’s design departments, to apply their various fields of expertise across ten different interpretations of the Air Jordan I and Air Force 1.
The reimagined designs are centered around five different character archetypes, the explorer, jester, lover, rebel, and sage, which serve as the inspiration for each shoe in the collection.
The 1 Reimagined Collection combines progressive radicalism with an austere, almost minimalist sensibility, as changes to the physical layout of the shoes are combined with a unifying theme of light grey, suede, nubuck, and mesh construction.
The mystical inspiration of the sage makes its presence felt, as the Jordan I is pared down to a basic, slip-on structure. Letting go of material attachments is the first step towards enlightenment after all.
Just as the sage is more likely to guide you towards finding the correct answer yourself, rather than simply telling you, the Sage Air Force 1 strips away the clutter, leaving the clean lines, and minimalist style of the classic sneaker behind as a beacon of wisdom.
